bill paid but dl speeds r very slow

Hi i have paid my monthly bill but my dl speeds are very slow still,i thought after each bill is paid that my dl speeds would go back to normal untill i reach the dl limit.

not happy at all with plusnet.

once my contract runs out im out of here!!!

a bit hasty arent you? im sure it will be easily solved.

run a speed test here http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/ and give the details in this thread, itll help the support team figure out your problem

what contract are you on? also is it a public torrent? they are well known for sucking speed wise ;p

plus remember this is peak time now, most gold (p2p and other unimportant protocols) have a lot of packets dropped to make sure web browsing, email and all other more important services run quickly

edit: also another thing to check, make sure your ports arent being blocked by a firewall and are forwarded on your router (if you have one)

Basic rule of thumb, don't bother torrenting during peak hours, 6pm till midnight.

I find I'll typically get 10-40KBs during peak times, doesn't matter if it's private, public, well seeded etc. This then increases to 300-600KBs after 1am.
